Beware terrible customer service and expect the locking tabs on your work bowl to break

Summary: very fragile work bowl. Plastic locking tab broke off the first time we grated cheese with it. The product was missing pieces (slicing blade) but came with TWO grating blade attachments. Customer service at Cusinart/Conair is absolutely atrocious. After about 10 calls, 10 email exchanges, I was finally able to order the replacement bowl under warranty in November. Here I sit writing this review in March, and the replacement bowl still has not arrived.
Summary: Bought this 4 months ago for my wife and has broken 3 times. The bowl twice and the cover once. Seems like the plastic material this is made from is rather fragile. The tabs break off when shredding cheese or mixing dough. Had bowl and cover replace under warranty twice and still have to pay return shipping. Long hold times and no flexibility on paying for return shipment. We have never had the cheaper food processors break before. This is not an upgrade from a $50 unit.
EXCELLENT UNIT FOR THE PRICE, BUT YOU'LL NEED TO ORDER A NECESSARY PART

Summary: We absolutely LOVE this processor (its heavy-duty, well-made, etc.), but its got a relatively rare and dedicated "Dough" button, yet it doesn't ship with an all-plastic dough blade?!@#$%&? Why? That makes no sense. We had to contact Cuininart directly and get them to ship us the part separately, which should NOT have been necessary.
Summary: I have had this for over a year now. Will chop 11 cups dry maybe. Works well for processing for dry to semi- dry foods, vegetables, meat, salads, cheese, coleslaw etc. It will only hold 2 (TWO) cups of liquid successfully. The center post is very short and making soup will splash down the center and make a mess everywhere. For liquids this is the worst I have ever owned. Don't be fooled by the stainless advertizing, It is all plastic with a stainless cosmetic cover.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a DLC 8 Plus. As this is an 11 cupper all the attachments I bought her over the years fit. My wife is very happy with this replacement. The only issue I have is that after I purchased this I saw this same unit at Costco for #132 which included 3 attachments and the box for holding the attachments.
Summary: LOVE THIS THING! My household is very produce heavy! We go through fruits, veggies, and beans like crazy. I usually have an entire day set aside just to prep all the veggies for the week. I get blisters on my knife hand! I have had processors before, but they never really performed as well I needed them to based on the mess and space they use. I have a small kitchen, getting counter space means you work and the chef loves you!
Summary: Needed a second food processor in our busy home kitchen. First time out of the box I chopped raw, fresh carrots, green beans and cabbage into small chunks and put them into the bowl. The machine chopped them into very fine particles, exactly what I wanted. But the blade wouldn't come off the shaft and out of the bowl without a tough struggle.
Summary: I love it but I have had a couple of problems, it overheated while kneading a bread dough, it was not overloaded I don't think, it was a recipe that used 3 cups of flour. It can be very hard to clean after mixing dough as it can get all up under the blade and I have to painstakingly pick it out of a little hole with a toothpick. I have been making sure I add the dry ingredients first then slowly add the liquids but it still does it.
Summary: I'd been using a GE food processor that was gift back in the mid-1970s. When it started making strange noises I began thinking about a replacement. Did lots of review reading and kept coming back to the Cuisinart brand. Then I had to decide what size would be best for my needs. Settled on this Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB 11-cup model. Wish I had made the move sooner! It's amazingly fast, easy to use, and easy to clean. Haven't used the "dough blade" yet, but plan to soon.
Summary: Previously I had other brands of food processors, parts of which broke fairly early on and did not do a great job. So I decided to invest in a Cuisinart this time. I have not been disappointed. I keep this on the counter because I use it several times a week for chopping, grating, slicing and mixing. This food processor and my Vitamix are among my favorite tools and make food prep, cooking and baking a breeze.
